BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rushing Duck Brewing Company
New York, United States | website

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
A new take on an old style. Saison’s originated in the South of Belgium and are famous for the distinctive fruity, spicy notes given off from the yeast. They also tend to be lighter, effervescent, and quenching. Bauli Saison is all of that, but adds a unique twist. We’ve added White Peppercorns, Coriander, and Kaffir Lime Leaves to the beer to enhance the spice flavors naturally produced by the yeast as well as adding a distinct citrus flavor to make it a lighter beer on the palate but still providing tons of flavor.

Had on tap at the brewery and brought a growler home. This is what Indra Kunindra would be if it were a saison. Weird right? It works and this is one tasty beer if you like lemongrass and coriander.

Light golden brew with a hazy body and a fluffy white head. Pretty solid retention and lacing out of the growler. Aroma is grainy and full of yeasty Belgian esters, citrusy hops, and peppery spice, but the lemongrass really jumps out front in a lovely way.

Flavor follows the nose fairly closely; the lemongrass hits you first and foremost; pepper from both the addition of white peppercorns and from phenols comes at you next; citrus and lightly floral hops; coriander (both seed and leaf); modest grainy malt backbone. Complex and tasty; thai-food in a refreshing saison package.

Medium-light bodied, medium-crisp carbonation. Unique and easy to drink and really lovely overall. Won't be everybody's cup of tea but we really enjoyed this.

32 ounce growler filled at the Green Growler Grocery, Croton-on-Hudson, NY

Pours hazed medium golden amber, under a looser off white head, and leaving a tiny bubble film, thin collar and quality fine high sheeting and loose fields of lace.

Lemon and light pepper on the nose.

Bright, lemony, peppery and yeasty saison. Nicely crafted and well worth a try.

On tap at Rushing Duck Brewing in Chester, NY.

This one pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a small head, and a lot of lacing.

This one smells pretty yeasty and spiced, with some lemon and orange and white pepper.

This was a really tasty saison with some interesting little twists and turns. This has a nice lemony and peppery character that really plays nicely with the saison yeast and the slightly citrusy hops.

This one is medium bodied, with a full bodied and pillowy mouthfeel, and a fairly high level of carbonation.

Another real solid beer from Rushing Duck.
